Collaboratively crafting viruses from different mediums, developing our understanding of how genetics changes a virus' structure, and how this structure changes a virus' ability to jump between different host species.
Merging biologists with craft practitioners and researchers, we'll lay the foundations for the wider Viruscraft project - a tangible interface game that could evolve in any direction.
Expect sessions with virologists and basketweavers, potters and programmers, sketchers and geneticists - everyone a little out of their comfort zone and nurturing their beginner's minds.
Email us at kernow[at]fo.am if you'd like be involved - all are welcome, particularly if you can bring a new perspective. The workshop is free, and lunch will be provided. The studio building is fully accessible for wheelchairs.
The project runs from 2017-2022 and is funded by the Wellcome Trust.
